Author: Jasmin Miller

Year of publication: Out today! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Photographer’s assistant Ember Keaton

The hero: Photographer Logan Ardennes

The blurb: Life regret number one: Moving into an apartment where all I hear are the moans coming from my downstairs neighbor’s apartment. It’s pretty obvious what’s happening behind those doors, which is even more frustrating when you aren’t getting any action yourself.

To make matters worse, I got fired from my job, and my savings account is pathetic. That means I can’t eat my body weight in donuts, even if I wanted to…and I really want to. Thanks to my sister, though, I have a new work opportunity lined up, and I promised myself I wouldn’t do anything to lose this one. Until I realize my new boss, Logan, is none other than my sex god of a neighbor.

Keeping my ever-growing attraction to him in check proves to be a lot harder than I thought, especially with my knowledge of his extracurricular activities. When my new job as his photography assistant keeps throwing us together–sometimes completely eliminating our personal space–I find it more and more difficult to remember why I’m supposed to stay away from him.

Hi, I’m Ember Keaton, and I suck at adulting.

Standalone or series: This is book one in the Best Kind series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: If you love charming, sweet stories and favour novellas because you’re time poor and just want something good to read in one sitting, then The Best Kind of Mistake is perfect for you.

Ember takes a job as an assistant to a photographer after getting fired from her previous role. Imagine her surprise when she turns up at the studio to find that the photographer she’ll be assisting is none other than the hot guy who lives in the apartment downstairs… the one she constantly hears noises from.

Logan is a well-known fashion and travel photographer who’s helping out his mother’s photography business while she has surgery, and unbeknownst to him, she’s hired an assistant to help him. He’s smitten with Ember the first time he sees her, but wants to stay professional as he’ll be heading home to NYC once his mother is better.

Ember gets to know Logan as they work together, and it turns out he’s not the playboy she assumed him to be. When she realises why, she admits she made a mistake… but Logan turns out to be the very best kind. By the time their assignment together is over, they’re head over heels. But with Logan’s job taking him all over the world, can they make a relationship work?

I adored this sweet and sexy story and it left me wanting more! Looking forward to the next one in the series.

Review: Baking with a Rockstar by Jasmin Miller

baking with a rockstarTitle: Baking with a Rockstar

Author: Jasmin Miller

Year of publication: Officially out tomorrow, but Amazon released it early! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Baker Charlie Peterson

The hero: Rockstar Hudson Mitchell

The blurb: When a rockstar and a single mom become roommates, delicious sparks are bound to fly.

Rockstar Hudson Mitchell is over the glitz and spotlight of the music industry. Desperate for a break from the fast-paced life of fame, he retreats to the one place that has always been home.

Brooksville, California.

It’s the same place where Charlie has taken refuge, trying to build a life for herself and her young daughter. The quiet, small-town atmosphere and her new bakery venture are exactly what she needs to pick up the pieces of her shattered past.

As they spend more time together, neither of them is prepared for the effect Charlie has on Hudson, and how important she would become for his career.

Standalone or series: I believe this is the first in the Brooksville, California series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: If I had to sum up this incredibly good debut novel from Jasmin Miller in one word, it would be sweet. This delightful romance is about Charlie, a single mother who moves from one side of the country to the other after suffering some terrible losses. Hannah, her grandmother’s best friend, persuades Charlie to move to California with her baby daughter, Mirabelle, and open the bakery she’s always dreamed about.

The one thing Hannah didn’t mention is that a couple of her grandchildren are famous. One of them, Hudson, is a member of a famous rock band, and when he unexpectedly shows up back home, Charlie doesn’t recognise him. Hudson finds Charlie’s lack of recognition – and Charlie herself – refreshing. He’s tired of the spotlight, thanks to his scheming ex, and just wants a normal relationship away from it. So when he first meets Charlie, his love of music and songwriting is once again sparked and she becomes his muse.

When Charlie gets to know Hudson better, she’s attracted to him in every way, and seeing how good he is with Mira just makes him hotter. But Charlie is hiding a lot of pain and a few secrets, and she’s scared that once Hudson finds out about them, he’ll walk away. Will she be willing to take a chance on love again?

While this book did have sex scenes, they were not graphic and there is no swearing, which made it a light, enchanting read. It almost seems hard to believe this is a debut novel; I’m very much looking forward to seeing what this author gives us next!
